    EarthX. A Colorado company. very nice?

    Question, how do those electronic boards hold up inside there under vibration and such? Love the idea you can use a normal charger?

    Hi, sorry due to the new postal regulations I can't ship overseas right now. Just too much of a hassle and expense.

    I think it's about time for a new battery in my dr350 with estart. I've read thru this tread and I think the 4 cell 2.3 will work for me but I have a couple questions.

    I don't often ride under 35 degrees but I Do see temps in the 40s regularly. Should I think about a larger battery to deal with this?

    On longer multiday backcountry trips I will plug my phone in to charge every few days overnight.(I know I could do it while riding,but I don't like not having my phone on my body while riding) Being that these batteries are starting batteries will this small load cause any issues?

    I'm trying to loose weight as well as free up some space in the battery box for a spare rear tube. So the flat 4 cell is appealing but is there any reason to go with the plastic cases square one instead?

    Thanks.

    If you ride the bike on really long trips I would go with a battery with more capacity. The 4 cells are for day rides and perfect for bikes with kick starts. Does your bike have a kick?

    Currently out of the 4 Cell 2.3 but have the square 4 cells. The best battery for your bike would be the ETX12A

    12 Amp hours and strong starts compared to 2.3 Amp hours. You won't have to worry about it.

    Just means you can take a few more chances and not worry about accidentally getting stranded.

    Looks like the ETX12B is the direct replacment for my 640 Adventure. I do multi day trips running heated grips, GPS, cell phone, and aux LED lights. Would the ETX18B be a better fit ?

    I always recommend going up a size. The weight difference is almost nil. The extra Amp hours can really make a difference.

    What would be the drop in battery for 2011 Husqvarna TE630? And would there be a larger size or heavy auxilary farke use.? Thanks!

    Hi, the ETX12A is the drop in and has plenty of reserve power for farkles. Almost twice the capacity of some of the similar lithium drop ins.

    Thanks.
